The Civil and Environmental Engineering doctoral program enables students to complete collaborative, innovative research with faculty mentors in areas such as environmental health, environmental and water resources engineering, geosystems engineering, and structural engineering and mechanics.
The doctoral program is a research oriented pursuit that requires in-depth knowledge of a specific topic of study and involves close collaboration with a faculty mentor. Programs of study are highly individualized, but consist of two main components: course work and independent research.
Doctoral-level research leads to fascinating discoveries and novel technologies. Program outcomes include:
Doctoral degrees require the fulfillment of the specific department requirements including the number of courses with grades of S (satisfactory) or at least a B-, as well as successful completion of the qualifying examination and doctoral dissertation.
Civil and Environmental engineers use their training to help society anticipate and respond to the emerging challenges of our changing world by focusing on natural and built systems, and by working at the intersection of infrastructure, the environment, and people.
Graduates of the doctoral program are well positioned for careers in academia, industry, government and consulting.
The doctoral program is the highest level of study and requires a serious commitment. Students who have excellent academic backgrounds and demonstrated capability for independent study/research are encouraged to apply.
Students entering the program are expected to meet the general admission requirements of the graduate school; gain acceptance into the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering; and hold a bachelor's or master's degree in engineering or a related field.
